Alpheus Thomas Mason; John T. Bobbitt; Encyclopaedia Britannica Films Inc.
Traces the historical development of the exercise of judicial review by the Supreme Court. Uses dramatized and semi-documentary scenes to show the significance of Chief Justice Marshall's establishment of judicial review in the Marbury vs. Madison case, the Taney and the Dred Scott decision, Lincoln's relationship to the Court through government by martial law and executive decree, the nullification of some New Deal measures and the attempt to "pack" the Court, and the gradual emergence of a more liberal point of view through normal turnover of personnel. Indicates the Constitutional provision for the Supreme Court, its jurisdiction, the nature of unconstitutional acts, and the path by which cases reach the Court.
